"It seems to me I am trying to tell you a dream-making a vain attempt, because no relation of a dream can convey the dream sensation, that commingling of absurdity, surprise,, and bewilderment in a tremor of struggling revolt, that notion of being captured by the incredible which is of the very essence of dreams. No, it is impossible, it is impossible to convey the life-sensation of any given epoch of one's existence-that which makes its truth, its meaning-its subtle and penetrating essence. It is impossible. We live, as we dream-alone".
------------- Joseph Conrad in "Heart of Darkness"

A Song from Garhwal Himalayas

The Rhododendron trees laden with flowers

Decorate the mountains,

Like jewels studded in a crown !

The 'kafal' fruit is ripe

Come dear friend - Let us go to the forest

To eat the fruit of the 'kafal' bush

The leaves of the Oak tree have turned green

There is water in the roots of the Oak

Come, quench your thirst !

Pluck the Rhododendron flowers

But do not break its branches

Cut the dry branches of the Oak

But do not cut it from roots !

Cut grass, but not the branches

of the Deodar trees.

नोबेल एक प्रोमिसरी नोट पर

बराक वाकई एक बड़ी संभावना का नाम है, उनमे प्रतिभा है, साफगोई है, और इस तरह का करिश्मा भी है, जो जन नेताओं मे दुर्लभ होता है। स्वयं बराक को बहुत पसंद करती हूँ। पर उन्हें शांती का नोबेल जिस तरह से दिया गया है, वों मुझे भी हतप्रभ कर गया है। ऐसा लगता है की ये एक अलिखित करार या प्रोमिसिरी नोट पर दिया गया है।
बराक की इन जीतो के मायने समझने मे कम से कम अगले आठ साल तो लगेंगे ही।
